General Conference is for kids too

General conference is, or should be, a high point in the year for young and old, but as most any Latter-day Saint parent can attest, it can be a challenge at times to keep the very young engaged, especially while they are listening to or viewing the conference broadcasts at home.

Now, a new Church Internet service available on the Church's Web site aims to help meet that challenge with several games and activities designed to keep young folks' attention focused on the words being delivered by the prophets, apostles and other Church leaders at these twice-yearly events.

The activities can be accessed at www.ConferenceGames.lds.org. Going there, parents and their children can expect to find such items as these:

*A "General Conference Notebook" that can be printed out and bound or stapled together. It includes a cover page that can be colored, a page of ideas to help a young user listen to and learn from general conference, a page of things to do after conference to help remember and apply the things learned therefrom, a page or half-page for writing down thoughts or drawing a picture based on the things said by each member of the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve, and additional pages for recording thoughts and drawing pictures from the talks given by other conference speakers.
